Hello to all!
Some days ago have tested CA VG1 in our studio!
Use it in channel separately, use it like mix bus compressor. Works best as in chanel, as in mix bus.
Think it is realy nice work!

Can anyone tell me what JP2 does? I don't see it in the manual. Is it just a solder blob like on the AML kits by the output transformers?

Thanks!

JP2 change meter from single led to bar.
JP2 not short - meter in Single Led mode
JP2 short - meter in BAR mode

Thanks for the info!

The last thing I am looking for is a BOM for the DOA PCBs that come with the kit. I should have the remainder of the parts showing up by Saturday and I can finish these guys up and move on to the next unfinished project!

Thanks!

Hi,
I'm looking for one 250k log pot from CTS as in the bom. I ordered from mouser and they shipped the one that are extra long and with clearance problems.
I then ordered from banzai and got only one from the right kind. Now I can't find it anywhere  on the net, or just with 500pieces MOQ (no thanks). I couldn't find a replacement part with the same value and shaft diameter.
As I'm building a stereo pair I'd like to have the exact same pot for both build.

I'd be happy to hear about where you sourced yours, guys. And even happier if someone has a spare one for me.

CTS  250log  is rare right now but you can try 250k log with switch .
we want try 1m log as alternative for 250k log, It will  increase max attack time

250k  log  with switch from banzai  http://www.banzaimusic.com/CTS-270-SW-250k-LOG.html

1M log from banzai  http://www.banzaimusic.com/CTS-270-1M-LOG.html

1M log from mouser  https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/CTS-Electronic-Components/270X232A105B2A1/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMtC25l1F4XBU9ebFVlJKl0pM6Uoq6v9eyI%3d
